Offering the most expensive lunch sandwich we know of, this is for the die-hard wagyu fan.
Asian cuisine and popular restaurants have slowly been taking over NYC with places like Zauo where you can catch your own fish, or the tea bar that serves matcha-infused beer, or even the Taiwanese dessert shops that are popping up. Now, a popular Japanese sandwich has arrived in the city by way of the new takeout restaurant — Don Wagyu.
The restaurant, located at 28 South William Street, focuses on the wagyu katsu sando, which is a small piece of buttery Wagyu meat sandwiched between two pieces of toasted white bread. Very simple. Very delicious.
The small space has a bar area with limited seating, intended for a quick bite and not exactly a long stay.
On the menu you’ll find only 3 options of the popular Japanese snack, katsu sandos. These include: American Washugyu ($28), A5 Miyazaki Wagyu ($80), and the A5 Ozaki Wagyu (at $180!). They all come with fries and pickles…if that helps you rationalize the cost at all.
